ParallelCluster can now mount lots and lots of file systems that you’ve previously created in your AWS account, in addition to the scratch filesystem you can ask it to create for you when you launch your cluster. And as of today, ParallelCluster supports OpenZFS as one of those filesystems, along with Netapp ONTAP - which will help you get access to data on your enterprise filesystems, too.

Olly Perks and Austin Cherian describe all this in detail, as part 1 of a 2-part series covering the new features of ParallelCluster 3.2.
